This book is a must read for anyone who has any questions about the outdoors, there is so much information its almost hard to wrap your head around. If the outdoors was set in the classroom this book would be the textbook.

This book has been around since 1970. After adding the latest and greatest technology the 8th Edition of this book totally kicks butt. There is so much you can learn by reading this particular book. Be prepared to be amazed by such in-depth knowledge of this fantastic hobby called backpacking or mountaineering. Every chapter goes in to huge detail about the relationship between man and nature. It's a must read for any hiker, climber, and mountaineer. I highly recommend this book.
